Miracles Never Cease
Just when the news is full of bishops and cardinals abusing children, not to mention financial shenanigans in the Vatican, we get a brand new miracle: “Virgin Mary statue ‘weeping olive oil’.”
It turns out that this is also a very special kind of olive oil. According to Bishop Oscar Cantu of New Mexico, “it smelled of roses, so something similar to the oil I bless and consecrate each year that we use for baptism, for confirmations and for ordination of the priests.” This can’t be found in grocery stores – only Catholic supply shops. Needless to say, it is extra, extra virgin.
The diocese is spending considerable resources to investigate this. Perhaps it will miraculously heal the Church.
